Cero-gel from Bohle is marketed as being able to remove the small marks and scratches on glass that are left behind by lifting equipment used during the installation process, or by glass handling equipment in glass processing factories. The microscopic imperfections in glass can attract dirt, including particles deposited by vacuum lifting cups, and these can be a source of customer complaint.
“Trying to remove these marks can cause a real headache for customers,” said Dave Broxton, Bohle’s managing director. “Cero-gel, developed and produced by Bohle, is a cerium oxide polishing paste which is designed to remove surface contamination such as limescale, cement marks or silicone, as well as light scratches.”
Cero-gel was developed specifically for the window and glass industry. It is designed for easy use, packaged in a small aerosol and can be applied to vertical glass surfaces without dripping. Surface contamination can usually be removed with a damp microfibre cloth. But for scratches, a drill-mounted felt polishing bob is most effective. Cero-gel is also suitable for ceramics and stone, and it contains no irritants or corrosive ingredients, according to Bohle’s representatives.
When something stronger than Cero-gel is required, Bohle’s XtraClean is said to remove more stubborn surface contamination quickly and easily, including limescale from glass showers, concretion on glass processing machines, and grinding residues, especially from satin-finished glass. XtraClean is especially good for removing burnt-in stains on hobs and oven doors, Bohle’s representatives have stated, but the product is equally at home removing graffiti, flash rust, silicone residue and oil and grease deposits.
Like Cero-gel, XtraClean can be applied using a damp microfibre cloth. To avoid marks from the outset, the Veribor lifting equipment range from Bohle is specifically designed to minimise marking while offering exceptional service in use, Dave said.
“In the end, maybe it is better not to mark the glass in the first place,” he said. For more information about Bohle’s products, visit bohle.com, email email@example.com or call the customer services team for free on 0800 616 151.
